The Elevate Team have recently purchased a workstation as a test / development environment. The workstation is needed to facilitate the growing number of pilots and projects on which we are working (see the projects and pilots area) with staff and students across the network. Outside of the benefit this will give us a much more robust Wolsey (blackboard) test environment before deploying enhancements and upgrades on the live service. The intention is also to explore a number of web based services with staff in around achieving some of their key learning objectives, for instance, e-portfolios, linear learning objects communication and collaboration tools. This will include tools, as the big blue button, Xerte, Mahara, and Wordpress.
If you'd like to know more about these tools, pilots and developments, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
